Vintage Santa Christmas card

I made some vintage Christmas cards a couple of weeks ago using MME 12x12 Christmas papers. The image is from a pack I bought at QVC last year.

I cut 3 strips of the paper and sewed them together and added white acrylic paint to the edges. I mounted the image and again painted the edge, then added a MS snowflake covered in glitter, a button and chipboard sentiment with ribbon.

Eh voila another vintage card.

I am sooooo sorry I am not about again at the moment. The end of term with all the Christmas activities and finishing paperwork etc has taken most of my time plus I have caught a very heavy cold which seems to be going down on my chest. So the little time I have had has been shared with writing Christmas cards, decorating the trees and snuggling up with a blanket on the sofa. So I am looking forward to Friday and getting more time to finish Christmas wrapping and time for creating and blogging.

I hope all of you, my blogging friends, are keeping well and I look forward to catching up with you soon.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
